B.C. adds another QB to Canadian Football League Roster

The B.C. Lions extended wide receiver Paris Jackson's contract and signed free-agent quarterback Buck Pierce on Monday.
Jackson, a six-foot-three, 190-pound native of North Vancouver had just 10 catches for 138 yards last season. He was selected sixth overall by the Lions in the 2003 draft out of the University of Utah.
"We felt we wanted to give Paris the opportunity to be a bigger part of our football club," said Lions head coach and general manager Wally Buono. "We feel Paris has worked hard and has a lot to offer now."
Pierce, a six-foot-one, 185-pound Californian, had 16 TD passes and 2,253 completion yards last season as New Mexico State University's starting quarterback.
